Every wall in my apartment is vibrating like this. The construction is two floors down and one apartment over, and I'd expected it wouldn't affect my life too much. Har har. Noise-canceling headphones with music in the bathroom with the fan on doesn't even cover it up. Maybe if I added blood-curdling screams of torment, that would drown it out?
In other news...the Euro is down to $1.22!! It was at $1.21 when we moved here in 2006 and had only gone up from there. I hope it doesn't go below that, but I guess it doesn't really matter so much to us right now even if it does.
In yet more news...back when Spotify was sweeping the US, I tried to install it here but could not since Germany didn't have it yet. Then I just forgot about it, but way back in March Spotify arrived in Germany. I finally remembered to install it yesterday, and it's great. I can't believe GEMA is allowing or it or they're able to pay GEMA enough or whatever is going on that is making Spotify possible, because it seems way too good that I can play anything I want any time in a country where YouTube is useless and Grooveshark was chased out. Hope it lasts! I'm enjoying the new Hot Chip right now, which I thought was going to be crappy from the one song I'd already heard via a music blog. Turns out that was just the crappiest song. Yay!
